I didn't hit water on hole 1 of either course!
I only missed 4 putts inside the circle at Vista.
Seeing so many friends, old and new.
Watching Markus Kallstrom CRUSH discs. (he had to take 50 foot comebackers for his second shot on holes other players were not even reaching)
Seeing Dave Feldberg and Barry Shultz battling it out over the last 6 holes of Vista on Saturday. Fantastic stuff -- be sure to check out the discgolftv.com
footage when it's available.
Double order of hash browns scattered and smothered at Waffle House.
Landing safe and in-bounds (by two inches) on the last drive of the last day (click on the picture to zoom in)
My putting and course management at the Fountain.
The Blue Iguana restaurant is closed.
I didn't finish in the cash--and I shot over par.
I couldn't putt at all out on the Fountain course. I really haven't figured out what the problem was -- conditions were perfect -- virtually no wind and the sun was shining. One of the problems I seemed to have was that I played every hole as if it was the hardest on the course. I didn't take advantage when I had the opportunity, I was too busy playing back on my heals. I know if I had more time to learn the Fountain, I would have owned that course.
But Vista seemed to really play to my strengths. As I mentioned before, I really love to play par 4 holes--and all the par 4 holes at Vista were something special. Big ups to Spinners for putting together such a solid challenging layout.
By the way, all whining about my game aside; I had a great time and I'm proud that I played as well as I did at Vista.
Here are some cool pictures
